Please take a moment to read Spa Valley Railway's appeal for new volunteers.

The Spa Valley Railway in Tunbridge Wells is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with the running of this popular heritage railway which has stations between Tunbridge Wells West and Eridge with additional stops at High Rocks and Groombridge.

Volunteers are vital to the survival of the railway and now more than ever the railway is looking for new volunteers to join existing members to keep this popular railway running its steam and diesel trains for visitors of all ages to enjoy.  Events and experiences at the railway include Afternoon Tea, Fish and Chip Suppers, Murder Mystery Evenings and the popular Santa Express.

If you have a few hours spare contact the railway to find out about the roles available in the engine shed, ticket office and catering department.   The railway also urgently needs a new finance director to help run the accounts.  Becoming a volunteer is also a great way to make new friends!

“We also train volunteers interested in becoming station masters, guards and of course train drivers!” said Jonnie Wesson who himself started as a volunteer at the railway when he was just 13yrs old!"

To find out more visit the volunteers page at www.spavalleyrailway.co.uk or contact us on volunteering@spavalleyrailway.co.uk or t: 01892 537715.
